A FAST-growing energy management company has announced plans to double its headcount to 60 in 2018, following a series of major contract wins.

Businesswise Solutions, which has already increased staff from 25 to 30 this quarter, has headquarters in Nelson, Lancashire with an office in Manchester and plans to open a further office in London in the first quarter of 2018.

Managing Director Frazer Durris said: “We have set aside a £1M budget to include recruitment, a new energy management platform and a major upgrade in offices and workspace.

“This has been a fantastic year for the business. We have gained award recognition for our service levels, welcomed property entrepreneur and BFC Director Brendan Flood on board as non-executive director and opened up opportunities with recognised brands in the hospitality, property, retail and manufacturing markets.
